just love listening to you talk. you make me proud to be a democrat. how much of president obama's leverage do you think he'll use or he will need to use to actuallily get this remormon passed? is there not momentum on the other side of the aisle that you think this will happen pretty quickly? >> yes, i think that's the most important thing. look nothing happens in washington, d.c. without a demand outside of washington, d.c. there is no one who can--who has a better position in our political structure than the president of the united states. i believe that's what president obama is going to do. our president will go from here to there and everywhere in the country, keep insisting that congress act. the people voted they re-elected him by 5 million votes. they'll use that bully pulpit. keep the pressure on the congress of the united states. nothing is going to happen unless we're persistent and insistent, and he's the one to keep it up for us. >> jennifer: i'm so proud you came to "the war room" and gave us the perspective on what happened. on the ground today. up next we switch
a visit. he called on congress to follow the city's lead and expand federal background checks. >> obama: all of the folks standing here behind me today, they are the ones on the front line of this fight. they see the awful consequences the lives lost the families shattered. they know what works. they know what doesn't work and they know how to get things done without regard for politics. >> jennifer: they might not be political, but they do have a lot of political power. in an historic moment today, house gop members actually got on board with a bill to curve gun trafficking, and the reason they supported it because it had the backing of law enforcement officials, joining me now is the mayor of minneapolis, r.t. rybak. mayor, welcome back inside "the war room." >> good to be here. >> jennifer: you had a good day today featuring and highlighting what you guys are doing in minneapolis in the push for gun safety. tell us how you see this working. will you end for example -- will minneapolis end contracts with gun companies if they don't back certain safety measures?
